About

Step back into medieval times in this town-building, people simulation game!

Villagers is a beautifully illustrated and richly detailed game where you build and nurture a thriving community using the people and resources around you. Success or failure depends on your ability to create a town that can grow and prosper, and overcome the harsh realities of medieval life!

Gather and manage natural resources for buildings, ensure a plentiful supply of food and water to keep your villagers happy and allocate them jobs to continually improve and expand your settlement. Watch out for travelling artists who can spread illness, fierce bandits and wild animals that attack your townsfolk and extreme weather conditions that threaten their very survival!

In Story Mode you follow the journey of a group of medieval settlers living through dark times filled with war and illness. Using your town building and resource management skills you must guide them through six challenging missions that introduce the different aspects of Villagers gameplay. The campaigns guide you through building your first town, trading with merchants, food and water provision, managing the emotional wellbeing of your villagers, coping will illness and defending your townsfolk from attack!

You start your game on virgin lands and learn to build a community that allows your town to thrive. Happy villagers are more productive, form relationships and build homes. Couples living in houses will eventually have children who are delivered to your town by a stork! As these offspring grow up, they themselves become workers and help to support the growing town. Adults grow old and weak and eventually die, so you can follow the life of your villagers from birth to death.

Villagers reviews and comments

Villagers is a really nice Build-up Game from my Point of view. Yes, the Similarity to Banished is there, as many others have already said, but from my Point of view, that doesn't pose a really big Problem. I like the Playfulness at Villagers, which reminds me much more of the old settler titles than it did with Banished. I often caught myself just forgetting everything left and right just to look over the Shoulders of fishermen at Work. Something I was missing from Banished, it was often just too depressed and the numerous Bugs were annoying-constantly the Seasons changed, after Summer suddenly came deepest Winters and I could watch my Villagers die. This has not happened to Me so far at Villagers, although it is just as demanding, the Field industry needs a lot of Attention, but nevertheless the Replay value after a Defeat is much higher, simply because the Optics reward you and give me the small, fine Details liked. Finally another Game with Wound Factor. Pro: + beautiful Graphics with Wound Factor + demanding + high Replay value + Villagers are Individuals: With Names, professions, Feelings & Needs + many nice Details + traceable Seasons (not constantly changing) + nice Easteregg;) Kontra:-Field Management needs a lot of Attention-Maps relatively small

So I have to say I like the Game so far. I started with a free Game and I think my People won't survive next Winter:D But that's ok, I'll start all over again;) Here are a few Things that make the Game attractive to me: + it's not too complicated and easy to learn (I didn't understand some Things right away due to the missing Tutorial, but after a While you then go on a Light) + the Villagers have Names , an Age, a partner, ... In this Way you can follow their Fate and see how their Lives are going + the Graphics do not shine with overly detailed Textures, but there is still a lot to discover when Zooming in, Which makes the Village seem lively and not static (Laundry hangs on a Leash, Lights go on and off, Villagers interact with each other, ...) + Events ... So far I have only noticed a few (Merchants, a Plague, Robbers, attack of wild Animals, ...) and I bet there are Some more Who expect me only criticism so far:-no Tutorial, only in a few Tips (I guess I should have played through the Fight Beforehand And not to venture to the free Game right away)-the (standard) map is very small and I couldn't build a Quarry anywhere (there was no Indication of Size and raw Material Deposits when choosing, if I remember correctly). I very much hope that not all Maps are so tiny, otherwise it would be quick with the Expansion of the Village ^^ Overall, however, my first Impression is positive and I will continue to play-Whether the Game offers long-term Fun will still show. If you want, you can also watch the gameplay videos I've made about it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jIn9azW8Qc8
